“Theres a perception that her appearance has been altered”

That isn’t a reliable source.

tinasheeeee August 12, 2014 at 9:14 pm

Didn’t you say it was in another ethnicity though?

follers August 12, 2014 at 9:21 pm

When did I cite IMDB as a reliable source?

midori29 August 7, 2015 at 12:14 pm

@Tinasheee, the designation African American usually includes that

lil kim had a surprise hit with LIGHTERS UP in 2005 in whole europe

plastic surgery is not bad and it can help people to be self confident

but lil kim has done too much

look at lil kim and you will see how many blacks hate it to be black

she has had blue contacts, died blonde hair, nose corrections and bleachings in order to look more white

as a teen she looked like a typical black girl

on the picture above she looks fantastic with the black hair

Delnegro August 11, 2011 at 6:14 pm

I like her sonq shut up bitch

nubianqueen August 11, 2011 at 5:36 pm

@ Willy Wonka…..Trinidadian is a nationality(country of birth), You Talked of trinidadian as if it was a a race …I’m from trinidad…But my race is African/ Black……..So Lil kim is probably Black( which I am guessing cause i dont see any physical features that tells me she is otherwise), but being that Trinidad is such an diverse place….She could have ancestry of Indian,White, asian, etc…any of these races….

I'm So Far Gone May 31, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Lil Kim wants so badly to look like she’s mixed with Asian. I remember hearing how she wanted an Asian chick to play her in “Notorious” smh

liyah May 7, 2011 at 9:25 pm

she only looks “native” because all the things she’s been doing to her face if you look at how she looked before you would think other wise.

WTF May 8, 2011 at 3:54 am

@Liyah

What is a native supposed to look like today?The vast majority are mixed blooded

liyah May 8, 2011 at 8:46 am

If you want to know what a native looks like google it and then compare it to the real face that she was born with. How can people say she looks native after all the facial surgeries she has obviously done. She has changed her nose, cheeks, chin, eyes and lips her whole appearance has changed not by genetics but surgery.

malik March 27, 2012 at 9:04 am

thats not true

you can see full blooded native americans

keepitreal August 10, 2011 at 5:02 am

MySpace Celebrity April 18, 2011 at 7:06 pm

Not everyone is mixed, even in America.

DENISE JOHNSON November 1, 2011 at 2:11 pm

YOU ARE RIGHT EVERY ONE IS NOT RACIALLY MIXED. African Americans do not know their full history, and tend to believe what they hear about all Africans being mixed raced.However, everybody may just be mixed. They are racially mixed or psyochology mixed.
